The Power of Pink is a fundraising event recognizing and celebrating the strength of women who battle and beat breast cancer daily. Proceeds from the event go directly to the Cancer Prevention Program at the Margie Petersen Breast Center at SJHC. SJHC believes that ultimately, prevention of cancer may be the most effective cure.
"The power and momentum of this event coupled with the generosity of our donors allows us to offer through our Cancer Prevention Program genetic risk assessment, nutritional counseling, yoga therapy, acupuncture, massage therapy and meditation as integral parts of a patient's care. We are grateful to our sponsors, and together, are all deeply committed to saving lives through the prevention of cancer. And, we are humbled by our collaboration with P!nk who gives so generously of her time and talent to help support our efforts," said Dr. Maggie DiNome, Chief of General Surgery at Saint John's and Acting Director of the Breast Center.
